For Startups Looking For Greater Business Success, Virtual Staff Is The Best Option


Visitors: 213

Finances are always an issue with any startup – be it a home business dealing in gifts or software company just tentatively starting out. Conserving finances is a foremost priority with an emphasis on trimming any unwanted fat and keeping expenses as lean as possible. Outsourcing can help in a big way by removing a large chunk of needless burden from a startup's shoulders by offering the twin benefits of cost savings and high skills.

Many a start-up owner (usually just an individual) usually multi-tasks in the hope of saving the fledgling company as much money as they can by handling a spectrum of responsibilities. So, the work of four people is managed by just one overworked individual. Ultimately, the inevitable happens - burnout and a mountain of tasks still pending. Is there a solution that works without burning too big a hole in an already stretched budget? Most definitely yes. Outsourcing is the first step. But, outsourcing to the right partner is the main deciding factor that can benefit a start-up and give it the necessary push to survive the early struggling days in any new business. So, instead of outsourcing to an unprofessional freelancer a better option would be to outsource to a dependable and reputed outsourcing vendor who provides you with someone more reliable like your very own virtual employee.

India is the world's favourite outsourcing destination and boasts of some excellent outsourcing companies whose dedication to service and professionalism has helped retain India its undisputed position at the top of the outsourcing heap. The established ones with an impressive global clientele, such as Virtual Employee , go one step further and provide companies and organizations with their very own virtual employee. Thanks to its advanced technology and excellent infrastructure, it makes it very easy for any company or an individual to upgrade from just one employee to an entire virtual team, all working under one roof for only one client at a time.

This vendor makes it possible for a company to outsource any office work in any filed or profession. From software development to graphic designing to content writing and SEO and from architecture to animation, as long as it is work that can be done with just a PC and an internet connection. But, that's not all. Alongwith the virtual employee, the vendor also provides the entire offshore package. So, for the price of only one remote employee, the start-up stands to gain an entire staff comprising of accounts, HR, and IT support who takes care of the other non-work related aspects of the outsourcing process. This virtual staff acts as the physical representatives of the client, overseeing the employee's performance and work on their behalf.

In addition, the vendor's office acts as a readymade offshore extension of the client's own unit. This means that the client is spared the headache and the expenses of investing in office rent, purchasing new furniture, PCs and laptops, other computer peripherals and software, telephone lines, and equally sticky procedures like employee insurance and benefits. For a startup to not be saddled with such additional burdens can be an enormous boon. All they have to focus is on work and getting their venture off the ground in a profitable direction.

In the final analysis, intelligent outsourcing can considerably free a startup's resources so that the same can be channelized into more profit-making areas.
